Volano Solutions welcomed another new hire to a team already stacked with talent. Brandon Norris started what we hope will be a long tenure with us yesterday and we initiated him to the group with a five star lunch at Taco John’s (it was taco Tuesday). A little bit about this guy and why we’re so glad he chose Volano.
Brandon is a graduate of the inaugural class of the Omaha Code School. Although is is new to coding, he came very highly recommended by Sumeet Jain, the head instructor. Sumeet took a lot of time to write a nice recommendation for Brandon in great specificity and with an understanding of what we were looking for and where he would fit in on day one and over the long run. This was a testament to Brandon and his abilities and to the Omaha Code School’s dedication to meaningful curriculum, student development and helping place graduates into the workforce.
Brandon is also a founder and current board member of the Omaha Maker Group and intrinsically loves building a creating. This is great because we pride ourselves on making custom software for our clients, not just maintaining legacy systems. We look for people who are excited about building things. Brandon builds RC cars, planes, quad copters and dabbles in 3D printing and CNC mills. He’s been “using computers since 5.25 were valid storage devices.” Brandon also made a robotic cocktail maker for a New Years party, a powerful anecdote for this writer in his initial interview.
Welcome aboard Brandon.
